Grading Agencies High-Value Data Sets

by on February 5, 2010 · 2 comments

Over on the Cato@Liberty blog, I’ve written a piece grading the “high-value data sets” agencies released a few weeks ago on Data.gov. (Agencies are supposed to have “/open” sites up by tomorrow.)

The results? Four As, four Bs, seven Cs, eighteen Ds, and eight Fs. Take a look!

    Well done, Jim. I especially like your comments about the two agencies we deal with most here on the TLF:

    Federal Communication Commission — F
    Failing to release data is pretty uncommunicative, don’t you think?

    Federal Trade Commission — F
    We think that running an agency without data transparency is an unfair and deceptive trade practice.
